For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to move back the morning high $8,965.0 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $9,025.53.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Bitcoin to break back through to $9,000 levels.
Barring a broad-based extended crypto rally on the day, the first major resistance and Friday’s high $9,000 would likely cap any upside.
Failure to break back through the morning high $8,965.0 could see Bitcoin fall into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $8,846 would bring the first major support level at $8,699.73 into play. Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Bitcoin should continue to avoid sub-$8,600 levels on the day.
